There’s no doubt quality starting pitching was one of the Ranger’s biggest downfalls in 2022. The Texas Rangers ranked 22nd out of 30 MLB teams with a cumulative 4.22 ERA. Additionally, Texas’ pitching issued the 4th most walks across the league and placed 24th in WHIP with a 1.34.
The Rangers haven’t had a winning season since 2017 which has led to growing frustration from fans and ownership alike. This is a big reason why Texas Ranger’s owner Ray Davis has given GM Chris Young the green light to increase the payroll for 2023.
Texas only has $80 million guaranteed for 2023, which is over $60 million less than last year. This means management has 60$ million to spend this offseason to match 2022’s payroll, not including any extra money the Rangers could likely spend.
With a star-studded free agency class and money to spend, the Texas Rangers are primed to make another huge splash this offseason. That being said, this episode I will give my prediction for the 2023 Opening Day rotation.
